    Previous AAO scholarship recipients to the Institute for Teaching and Learning had this to say:

    This is an essential course for all educators. I wish I had taken it 10 years ago!

    – Dr. Sneha Oberoi, Associate Professor, Orthodontics, University of California, San Francisco

    I recommend this program to everyone who is starting to teach and is genuinely committed to dental education. It covers all the basic concepts of teaching in a very friendly and social setting. It’s a great opportunity to meet with colleagues and start networking as well.
